The Wolves, who saw their four-game winning streak snapped, received a pair of goals from Keith Aucoin and goals by Sebastian Wannstrom and Evan Oberg. Mike Davies and Christian Hanson each picked up 2 assists.

The Wolves (16-12-1-2) led 4-3 after two periods, but the Monsters tied the score with 1:45 left in the game when Andrew Agozzino beat goalie Matt Climie (3-6-0, 26 saves) top-shelf through a crowded crease.

The Monsters (15-12-0-3) skated off with a win 2:48 into overtime when Mark Olver scored the game-winner on a pass from Michael Schumacher.

The Monsters had opened scoring 4:50 into the contest when Schumacher took the puck as he was exiting the penalty box and scored.

The Monsters doubled their lead at 5:59 of the opening period when Trevor Cheek beat Climie high glove-side.

Wannstrom notched his first goal the season at 16:41 to cut the deficit to 2-1. Goaltender Calvin Pickard (8-7-2, 35 saves) made the initial stop, but lost the puck in a scrum and Wannstrom roofed the puck over Pickard's glove.

The Monsters regained their 2-goal lead 6:21 into the middle period when J.T. Wyman scored off his own rebound.

The Wolves rallied again to get within 1 when Aucoin deflected Cade Fairchild's low shot from the blue line into the net.

With 1:02 remaining in the second period, the Wolves' Oberg took a shot from the point that beat a screened Pickard to tie the game at 3-3. Aucoin took a centering pass from Davies 35 seconds later and fired a shot behind Pickard to give the Wolves a 4-3 lead.

The Wolves host Charlotte today at 4 p.m. at Allstate Arena in Rosemont.
